Justin Bieber's performance in Zurich, Switzerland, where he will support his Purpose album, will be broadcast live on the 2016 American Music Awards. Organizers announced the news on Wednesday and this will mark the 22-year-old pop star's sixth AMAs performance.
The "Love Yourself" singer, who last performed live on the annual AMA show last year, will join performers John Legend, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5 Fifth Harmony, Green Day, The Weeknd, James Bay, The Chainsmokers and Halsey, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, and Kendrick Lamar, along with Sting, who will receive the American Music Award of Merit.
Justin Bieber is used to seeing the Beliebers weeping tears at his concerts. However, the roles have changed at a show in Germany this week, and the pop idol was the one choking up. Bieber stopped to wipe his tears during the performance of "Purpose," the title track from his latest hit album.
A video shared by Hollywood Life that was shot during the show Wednesday (Nov. 16) at Frankfurt's Festhalle catches the Bieber's emotional moment. He paused to dry his eyes in the middle of the song with, of all things, his Metallica shirt.
Beliebers know that it was, by no means, the first time their idol has had a weepy moment during his concert. Although, he famously cried after his comeback performance of "What Do You Mean" at the 2015 American Music Awards.
The question arises as to whom he thought were going as he sang "you give me purpose." Was he thinking about his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, who is currently in the rehab treating depression and anxiety attacks due to lupus? Or he was sad because Sofia Richie is moving on with Cameron Dallas?
The popstar will have a chance to let it all out while the world is watching his performs via satellite from Zurich, Switzerland for this Sunday's American Music Awards.
